Winter / Spring 2014

From the Director’s Chair I, like many of you I’m sure, can’t believe how quickly 2013 passed by but am grateful for the year it was. Not only was it my first full year at the Schauer Center (and an exhilarating one!), but we had a few noteworthy firsts. The Schauer Center was the proud recipient of its first-ever National Endowment for the Arts grant for The BIG Read. October was chock-full of Poe-related events and fun activities for all. Thank you to all the organizations throughout Washington county that partnered with us to make the program a success! We also launched our pARTicipate events in October. pARTicipate events are an effort to serve our greater community better and welcome all, especially newcomers, in a relaxed atmosphere. Our Wine & Painting classes have been so popular that we have one scheduled every month from now through May.

We’re looking forward to more pARTicipate events, including our first Sweetheart's Swing Dance on Thursday, February 13, which includes ballroom dance lessons prior to a Valentine's Day-themed party. And we’re excited for a music-filled night with Whiskey of the Damned on Thursday, March 13 as part of our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Another first was that we received funding from Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s Miracle on Canal Street in December. As part of their 20th anniversary celebration, the Schauer Center received $2,633. Thank you!

So, my New Year’s resolution for you is to encourage you to invite someone new to the Schauer Center or experience something new here for yourself! If you're planning to attend our Season Sneak Peek on Sunday, February 1, bring a neighbor, family member, co-worker or friend with you to help select our 2014-15 performances; if you’ve always been curious about an art form like painting or ballroom dance, join us for one of our Winter/Spring classes so that you can explore it first-hand. Help us spread the word about all the great things happening at the Schauer Center — we’re grateful for your help and your support in doing so.

With the variety of opportunities and number of events we offer, I’m always amazed when I meet people who have lived in the area for several years and haven’t heard about the Schauer Center. It’s also interesting how many people are unaware of our Community School of the Arts — it’s not just for children! We welcome students of all ages.
